I’ll let you in on a little secret. The real reason Damon wears a cage is not to protect his face, it’s to stop him from biting other players. Damon likes to get his balls “top centre” which may explain the slightly pained expression you often see on his face while he’s playing. Here’s a little more about Damon.
